Journalism Justice Network Code of Ethics
As members of the Journalism Justice Network, all of our journalism must meet the standards in this code.
I commit to honesty and fairness and to not plagiarize.
I further agree to avoid conflicts of interest or to identify conflicts or potential conflicts if they cannot be avoided. In addition, I will encourage those who have concerns about my work to voice their concerns, and if they are valid, I will address those concerns in appropriate fashion, including correcting any mistakes as soon as possible.
Because it is impossible to list every possible permutation of situations that might arise, the journalism standards and definitions in this code are not all-inclusive.
Penalties for code violations range from letters of warning to exclusion from the Journalism Justice Network.
